Summary:
In this program, compelling interviews with several teens who have suffered from anorexia nervosa (self-starvation), bulimia (a pattern of binge eating and purging) and compulsive overeating provide a living portrait of eating disorders. Young women and, to a lesser extent, young men succumb to these devastating diseases as a way to gain control over their bodies, and consequently, their lives. Becoming isolated and secretive, victims of these disorders often deny their illness and impede attempts at treatment. Experts in the field discuss the causes and symptoms of eating disorders, techniques for prevention and detection, and the treatments available. Part of the highly informative Schlessinger Teen Health Video Series featuring discussions led by adolescent medicine specialists. Dynamic graphics and music help present the information in a memorable and nonjudgmental way. A Teacher's Guide is included and available online.

Only available in the US.
